One teaspoon of dried red pepper flakes with give you a mild heat flavor for more spice then increase the pepper flakes. Plan ahead the pork needs to marinade 8-24 hours. Make certain to soak the wooden skewers a minimum of 30 minutes before threading and grilling. Serve with favorite dipping sauce or you can use whatever leftover marinade that you have after basting the satay as a dipping sauce if desired. Make certain to use only low-sodium soy sauce for this recipe, also if you are using peanuts in place of peanut butter they must be unsalted. The recipe may be doubled but divided into two separate recipes and the pork marinated in two separate bowls. This will work well on on an indoor grill or oven broiler heat. For dipping sauce see Spicy Peanut Sauce
